Nugent: No offer
Ipswich Town say they are yet to make an offer to sign Portsmouth striker David Nugent.
Portman Road boss Jim Magilton has confirmed he remains interested in the England cap, who struggled during his debut season at Fratton Park.
Magilton tried to sign Nugent on loan last term and has admitted he is the type of player who could aid Ipswich's promotion push.
However, Town chief executive Derek Bowden has revealed the Championship club have not made a firm move for Nugent, despite reports of a £5million bid.
"We have not made any formal offer for the player," Bowden told the club's official website.
Meanwhile, Bowden has confirmed Ipswich are still in talks to sign Ben Thatcher, who is available on a free transfer after leaving Charlton.
Thatcher recently trained with Ipswich, and has been on trial at Wolves this week, with Bowden awaiting progress on the negotiations.
He added: "We are in discussions with Ben Thatcher and we will see what develops over the next few days."
